Soccer Ball Uthappam

Uthappam  is one the favorite tifffin items in South India. The toppings for it is innumerable. Goes perfect with Sambar or chutney. I prepare Uthappam with Onion topping or Paneer topping. Since the soccer fever is on I wanted to make them in Soccer ball pattern. Cut the paneer slices in the required patterns, fried them n arranged them in the soccer ball pattern. If you want a healthier option you an grill them too.
Sending this Soccer ball Uthappam to my own event

You need:

Parboiled Rice                     2cups
Whole Urad Dhal                1/2cup
Toor Dhal                            1tbsp
Fenugreek seeds                  2tsp
Paneer                                  250gms(block)


Soak the rice n dhals together with fenugreek seeds for 4-5hours
Grind them to a soft batter n add the required salt.
Leave them to ferment for a minimum of 20 hours. Use them immediately or store in the refrigerator n use them as n when needed.
Take the required amount of Batter.

For the Soccer Ball pattern for 1 Uthappam you need 1 PENTAGON, 5 TRIANGLES, 5 STRIPS
Slice the Paneer thinly n cut them in Pentagon, triangle n into strips. Calculate how much Uthappam you are going to make n Cut the required Patterns. Fry them in oil till golden brown.
Heat the tawa, Keep them in low flame, Pour a laddleful of batter n spread them in round shape, dont spread them as you do for Dosai, it should be little thick , immedeiately arrange the Paneer in the soccer ball pattern,
place the pentagon shape in the centre, arrange five strips in the corners, n in the end of the stripe arrange 5 triangles,
Drizzle oil in the edges, Bring the heat to medium, turn them over n Cook them
Serve hot with Chutney n Sambar
